It started raining so we had to momentarily move the party inside.
Even during the summer my family is cold in my parent's house. Pretty good for no air conditioning!

Welcome to the party island!! There was a hole in it at the end of Afterglow last year but thanks to my dad it was fixed and ready to go for this year!!!
Matching shirts :)
Our tradition for one of the nights is to go to Alexander's pizza, followed by ice cream, followed by the candy store and finished off with go-carts. Always a night to look forward to because we have a blast every year!
This loon was stuck in the lake for a while because the lake was not big/long enough to fly across and then to get high enough to go over the trees. So it would swim to our end, take off, then land at the other end just to swim back again. I think there were around 10 attempts to leave the lake but we didn't mind watching the process over and over again.
In flight. It is amazing how much noise their wings make when they are taking off.
Something we do every morning is have 'breakfast club.' This is something that our dads started to get the kids out of the cabin so that the moms could sleep in. Now it is just nice to start every day having breakfast together outside on the lake.
The beach. There were not too many beach days because it was so windy but we took advantage of the ones we got. The other days were spent on the party island.

We had a great day! Thanks Bill and Mary!!!!
I am now 14 weeks along and I am feeling better. I feel like I am slowly gaining my energy back but I don't feel like I have tons of it. I am very happy to be in my 2nd trimester and even think I have felt the baby move a couple times (no it was not gas). It will be nice and fun when feeling the baby move is a more definite feeling and more regular. The bump is slowly coming along as you can see in the picture and I am starting to allow Scott and my friends to put their hands on my stomach without slapping them away. It's a big step for me :) I can still sleep on my stomach but I think that will soon be over which I am not excited about because I sleep on my stomach a lot. Oh well, it is for a good cause and only temporary. So far so good!
